The University of Malta traces its origins to the founding of the Collegium Melitense which was set up through direct papal intervention on 12 November 1592. This college was run by the Jesuits on the lines of their other colleges established elsewhere and known as 'Collegia Externorum', catering for non-Jesuit students.
UM is committed to high standards of research and teaching and every member of staff at UM plays an important role and contributes to outstanding student experience.
Today UM is composed of fourteen faculties, a number of interdisciplinary institutes and centres, three schools and a junior college.
Besides the main campus, situated at Msida, there are three other campuses: Valletta, Marsaxlokk, Gozo.
At UM research projects address current needs and opportunities, as well as those that may affect the country in the future. This is done in conjunction with Government and private industry, and also by participating in EU research programmes and funding.
